Engineering, Technology and Engineering Sciences
Institute of Physics and Technology
Full-time: 4 years
Training is conducted over four years based on school-level education. Graduate qualification: bachelor's degree, possibly followed by a master's degree.
Instruments and methods of quality and diagnostics constitute a field of control technology that encompasses the complexity of tools, methods, and techniques for creating and utilizing devices and systems designed to acquire information about the quality of materials, semi-finished products, and finished products, as well as to diagnose their performance, reliability, and durability.
Graduates can develop devices for quality control or utilize pre-existing compounds for quality control of finished products.
Many industrial enterprises either have their own non-destructive testing services/technical control departments (QT) or procure the services of such departments.
Every year, we receive graduate feedback indicating that the department cannot fulfill employment demands completely.
Support for the educational program is provided by the Department of Physical Methods and Quality Control Instruments.
Objects of professional activity include devices, systems, and complexes associated with the use of non-destructive physical methods for testing materials and products. This involves implementation in various areas of production, processes of development, production, and operation.
Graduates may find employment in the following areas:
- Rosenergoatom enterprise
- Defense industry
- Aviation industry
- Electronics industry
- Oil and gas complex
- Precision engineering
- Medical institutions of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation
- Small and medium-sized companies using high technology
Potential workplaces for graduates include:
- Research institutes of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences
- Ural Electrochemical Plant, Novouralsk
- NPO Avtomatika (development and production of space technology)
- Transgaz LLC
- Ural Electromechanical Plant
- Ural Center for Standardization and Metrology

Support for the educational program is provided by the Department of Physical Methods and Quality Control Instruments. Established in September 1983, the department is currently led by Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor S.V. Nikiforov.
Throughout its existence, the department has trained more than 1,000 engineers in the development and use of non-destructive testing methods and instruments, specialists in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics, as well as in metrology and standardization.
Based on the results of scientific research conducted by scientists from the departments of FMPC, more than 30 candidate and 6 doctoral dissertations have been defended. The department offers training in three areas of bachelor's and master's degrees and recruits for postgraduate studies.
